    MovieWiz movie folder structure?

    What's the best way to set up folders and file names for MovieWiz? I'd like to get it right the first time, if at all possible.

    Also, what if there is a series of movies, like Halloween and Friday 13th?

    fwiw, I use folders which contain the movie file and movie jpeg. But as this plugin does not seem to be supported anymore, and does not work properly (for me, anyway, no movie data is retrieved from IMDB because of changes on their website, so data must be manually entered into the DB), I would rethink using this as your movie manager. Too bad, as it's wonderful.

    Darn! But, what if you could use a metadata scraper, like Media Center Master, to get the data and then import it into MovieWiz?

    Is there anything else in the way of a usable, and supported, movie manager for either GPVR or NPVR?

    Thanks.

    XBMC or Boxee both have great movie library capabilities; I've tested them. You can run them as a custom task. But for me, it's a no go, as I'm presently running XP, and neither XBMC or Boxee supports DXVA on XP. My wimpy Atom 330 won't cut it, without.... I'm too lazy to upgrade my OS now, as my setup is rock-solid (6 months and counting). Good luck.

    A replacement "MovieWiz" plugin is what is mainly holding me back from upgrading to NPVR. I'd like to say I'd tackle a plugin that would be similar, but I just don't have the time to start it.
